Earliest copy of Da Vinci's Mona Lisa found.

Anna Iram:
Believed to be painted alongside Da Vinci as he worked on his masterpiece. Said to be better preserved and showing detail difficult to see in Leonardo's. I'd love to see this.

I am stunned.. (shouldn't be)  I was aware that it had been altered over the years but it is striking the posability of how much!  Such detail.. The lace.. the ringlettes..  the BACKGROUND!   So beautiful.

Anna Iram:
I know! Interesting note on Rowen's link. The artist gave her eyebrows. :)

Auryn:
fascinating

to be honest
I like the Prado version better.
Much more life and interest in my opinion
